2015-16 New England Pass On Sale Today

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, ME (March 10, 2015)-The New England Pass, providing access to Loon Mountain in New Hampshire plus Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine, goes on sale today, March 10, at the same price as the 2014/15 spring sale rates. All three ski resorts are also included in the M.A.X. Pass, launched today through a partnership between Intrawest, Powdr, and Boyne Resorts providing access to 22 premier mountains across North America.

Those who purchase a 2015/16 New England Pass in full are eligible to use that pass to ski or snowboard for the rest of the current season at Sugarloaf, Loon Mountain, and Sunday River, beginning on March 16. For all three resorts, the end of the season historically occurs between mid-April and early May. Another perk of the spring sale: Anyone looking to lock in the lowest rates of the season, available only during the spring sale, can choose the Easy Pay Plan by putting $50 down before April 30.
